Verde River Greenway Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This obscure little trail goes from Riverfront Park (across the river from Dead Horse Ranch State Park) along the riverbed. A spur goes to the visitor center in downtown Cottonwood. The remaining trail passes through astounding riparian woods until it terminates at the riverside."
--Tony Padegimas, Five-Star Trails: Flagstaff and Sedona (Menasha Ridge Press).
"The hike route follows the north bank of the Verde River between Clarkdale and Cottonwood. Starting at a popular swimming hole, the trail parallels the riverbed, and then, as the river bends south, winds through a bosk of mesquite trees and a wide field within the bounds of Tuzigoot National Monument before returning to follow the river once more. The trail terminates at an alternate trailhead within Dead Horse Ranch State Park."
